Zazen (sit in meditation) experience in Daitsuji Temple
We have more than 30 Buddism temples in Yakage and we can try Zazen(sit in meditation) at Daitsuji-Temple located just 2 km north-west of Yakage central area. This temple was established in the year of 743. The garden with a combination of many solid stones placed in set patterns shows beautiful appearances changing with the seasons.
One of the room is dedicated for Zazen experience and you can sit quietly with your legs crossed and your back upright. Done in silence for the most part and you can hear the sound of birds or wind.
After Zazen you will be invited to take green tea and can have a chance to talk with the priest.
